GOURMET GALLEY AT THE
NEWPORT MANSIONS

Gourmet Galley Catering is elated to be named a Caterer of Choice with the Preservation Society of Newport County for 2018 bookings and beyond! It’s an exciting time for our GG family, as we simultaneously celebrate 20 incredible years in business. For those planning an event {of any kind} at one of the Preservation Society’s distinguished properties, the experienced Gourmet Galley team is prepared to turn your Newport Mansion dreams into cherished memories. If you’re new here and just so happen to be in the very beginning stages of your search for the perfect venue, well, you’re in for a treat.

From humble beginnings, operating out of a small commercial kitchen in her family home located in Quaker Hill, CT, our owner, Anna Lathrop, was a young entrepreneur with big ambitions. She has nourished the company into the facility we call home today, designed to service venues and clients across the great State of Connecticut and, now, evermore into Rhode Island! Our address may have changed over the years but one thing holds constant, our mission to serve great food from the freshest ingredients possible. Gourmet Galley is proud to be a Green Business Bureau certified caterer and we provide a fun, boutique experience with a warm, and down-to-earth approach. You can expect sophisticated, yet approachable offerings from our kitchen that your guests will rave about for years to come.

Our team is excited to bring fresh eyes and creative energy into the beautiful spaces that make up the Newport Mansions.
